Jon “Bones” Jones had an eventful presser for his upcoming headlining fight against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232. The two-time UFC Light Heavyweight Champion blasted a Swedish female reporter for prying at him about his positive drug test on December 9th, telling her that she sucked and was bad at her job.
The 31-year-old was also asked about a viral tweet he posted on Christmas Day in which he asked his 2+ million Twitter followers for suggestions on a walkout song for Saturday’s main event fight.
Many of the song suggestions devolved into jabbing Jones about his suspensions for banned substances, suspensions that robbed him of two-and-a-half years of his prime and several million dollars.
Some responses were objectively hilarious:
During Thursday’s UFC 232 press conference in Los Angeles, For the Win’s Andy Nesbitt asked Jones if he saw the tweets ribbing him and he said, with a laugh:
“I heard all types of jokes – Oops, I did it again, Britney Spears. I picked a really great song. I think the lyrics to the song are very fitting. You guys are going to have to watch UFC 232 to check it out. Not a hint, no. But it will be extremely fitting.”
Hmmm. I’d guess that the “fitting” song Jones chose would be a song like Tupac’s “Me Against The World” or OutKast’s “So Fresh, So Clean.” I’d be willing to throw money on it.
